Symposium SB04-Materials and Devices for In Vitro Cell—Tissue-Electronic Interfaces

Over the last two decades, the field of bioelectronics has greatly progressed due to parallel advances in materials chemistry, bioengineering, and electronics. This progress has been further amplified by the advent of organic and 2D electronic materials that can be used as alternatives to traditional electronics. These materials not only can promote the seamless connection and communication with the biological content, but also allows for the efficient transduction and amplification of biological signals using bioelectronic devices both in vivo and in vitro.
This symposium will provide a timely opportunity to discuss advances in in vitro bioelectronics, covering a range of multifunctional materials (from organics to hybrids and 2D materials) for interfacing with biological systems at different scales and complexity levels. It will focus on novel in vitro/on-chip bioelectronic device designs and functions, as well as on fabrication techniques and real world biomedical applications. This symposium aims to bring together scientists working in academia and industry in the fields of chemistry, physics, biomaterials, bioengineering and electrical engineering. Topics of interest include bioelectronics for in vitro cell models, cell-based biosensing, biointegrated electronics, bioprinting/biofabrication, 3D bioelectronics, cell-free biological models (cell membranes, vesicles etc.).

Topics will include:

  • Bioelectronics for cellular & subcellular interfaces and models.
  • 2D electronic materials for biotronics/bioelectronics
  • Bioelectronics for system-on-a-chip applications (organ- /membrane-on-chips, electrophoretic chips, wound healing assays etc.)
  • Bioinspired and biomimetic electronic materials and architectures
  • Cell-electronics interface engineering (i.e., functionalization, micro-/nano-structuring)
  • Electrochemical cell-based biosensors
  • Additive manufacturing technologies (i.e. bioprinting) for functional tissue-electronic interfaces
  • Electro-responsive systems for controlled drug release & delivery
  • Interfacing subcellular components (i.e., organelles, vesicles etc) with bioelectronics
  • Bioelectronics for in vitro tissue regeneration
